Description of Lecture
Janet Stone, Department of History, will present a discussion of Reflections on the French Revolution, written by Edmund Burke in 1790 when the Revolution had barely begun. From the distance of two hundred years, further reflection naturally includes a comparison between the French experience and that of the United States. Why did these two revolutions follow such different paths? A consideration of the constitutional struggles of the French Revolution can show that the French faced very different problems from their contemporaries in the United States.
